District seeks applicants for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Committee

District seeks applicants for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Advisory Committee

SALINE, MI February 13, 2019 – At the February 12, 2019 meeting,  the Saline Area Schools Board of Education announced the creation of a Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Advisory Committee.  The committees' charge is to develop a mission statement for the committee, adopt definitions, and establish goals. The DEI committee will report monthly to the Board of Education.

“After four community conversation meetings centered on issues of diversity, it became clear that developing a focused, work-oriented committee to explore diversity and inclusion was necessary. Making solid recommendations to the Board of Education is the next step,” said Superintendent Scot Graden.  “The committee will be relatively small - 15 to 20 members - but additional opportunities for participation and feedback are available for those interested.”

Interested community members are encouraged to apply by Friday, February 22, 2019.

The application is online here: https://goo.gl/forms/5gdgFOBnEAXtQEmW2
